This project was started a loooong time ago (December 2010!) so I want to thank all the amazing helpers in the CFF, because without you guys I would never have finished this upload, and those many hours of my life would have been totally wasted lol. On with the show!

Zooey Claire Deschanel (born January 17, 1980) is an American actress, musician, and singer-songwriter. I first started following her career when I saw her as Trillian in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005), but I really prefer her music to her acting. She's one half of the indie duo She & Him, along with M. Ward, and I recommend you check them out if you like that kind of music at all. Aside from that, I'm in love with her style and clothes, which made her really fun to make Since late 2011, Zooey's sitcom show New Girl has made her a much more visible and popular actress, and I was inspired by Malfoya to include a Jess Day version in this upload (for teh cloze!!1).

So, I offer you two Zooeys: a "regular" CC-lite Zooey Deschanel, with no CC clothes apart from two free Store dresses, and a Jess Day New Girl Zooey Deschanel, with a longer CC shopping list. They have exactly the same face and genetics. Of course, you can have both if you like :D


Zooey's traits are Artistic, Star Quality (Late Night), Friendly, Lucky and Hopeless Romantic (if you heard her music, you'd know she couldn't not be this last one!). Her Lifetime Wish is to be a Superstar Actor (Late Night). If you don't have the Late Night expansion, the corresponding trait/wish will be automatically replaced by a base game one.

Jess' traits are Artistic, Excitable, Friendly, Absent-Minded and Good (I don't watch New Girl all that much, so it may be a bit off). Her Lifetime Wish is to be Super Popular. I chose the favourites as Red, Autumn Salad and Indie music.

Here's what she needs to look all pretty...

CC info

Necessary for both Zooeys:

- Zooey hair by Coolsims (lower poly version)
- Chignon bun by S-Club, retextured by Anubis
- Brows by Traelia
- Spiced cider skintone (she is packaged with default skin since this is the default I use)
- Eyelids (eyeshadow) by dutch
- 3d lashes (eyeliner version) by S-Club
- Swoop blusher by Lady Frontbum
- Dry lips lipstick by IN3S (original site is down it seems)

Zooey's clothes:
- Fiona (everyday) dress by the Store (free! This can only be downloaded through the in-game shop mode)
- Diva (formal) dress by the Store (free!)

Jess' clothes:
- Aysha dress by Augusto
- Nerdy glasses without lenses by IN3S (original site is down it seems, scroll down to [IN3S] Nerdy Glasses.7z)
- Flats with bows by Anubis
- Margarida dress by Juliana
- Bow Toe heels by the Store
- Pyjamas by the Store
- Racerback vest by Sosliliom
- Track shorts by Modish Kitten
- Swimsuit by Juliana

Sliders (these are only necessary if you want to edit her face! If not, you can skip these)
- Bella3lek4's face sliders
- aWT's eyeball sliders
- aWT's upper lip sliders (I really could not have made Zooey without these!)
- Johna's head shape slider
- Awesomemod slider hack (mine is set to x5!)

Additional Credits:
I'd like to thank everyone who contributed in the CFF thread over the years (lol), and especially the following (in no particular order): SimmyRN (omnipresent and unwaveringly helpful); ameenah.n.y (for convincing me that I was close); malfoya (for the New Girl inspiration and lots of help previously); MzzUnvrz (for bringing the lip sliders to my attention); FREEDOM_55, christmas fear, Audrey, heaven, TVRdesigns (for general helpfulness and also encouragement). You guyz <3

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

You did an absolutely stellar job with her! She is literally a perfect rendition of the real-life Zooey!! I'm so happy that you finished her up and shared her. Great sculpting, styling, and presentation. I tried in the past to recreate her as a sim, but could never get it right, whereas you truly nailed her likeness! All your hard work was worth it!! This is an insta-download for me. <3

You don't need to glasses for the sim to work. You can just replace them with any pair of glasses you want.

You did a really great job of recreating Zooey. I've seen some questionable recreations before, but yours is quite close. Thanks for sharing

I love Zooey very much. I am probably among her biggest fans, no exaggeration. You have made my Sims 3 so much better and I thank you immensely. She is as close to a perfect recreation as any could possibly imagine.

This great! I like how you included a Jess version. I would love to be able to find the rest of the New Girl cast someplace. The neighborhood I play has an industrial loft like in the show and would love to move them in there.
